Ariadne and Dionysus at PantheaCon Feb 18, 2019


Before Mount Vesuvius covered Pompeii with ash, a spiritual center flourished near the city. Women experienced profound initiations there, similar to those of Eleusis, but focused on womanhood. Gorgeous murals in the Villa of Mysteries illustrated the journey. Linda Fierz-David's book "Women's Dionysian Initiation" shows how this supported individuation in the Jungian sense, and is as relevant now as it was 2,000 years ago. We will discuss the literature, explore the murals, and use trance to go there and experience the initiation ourselves. Jo Carson will present. February 18, 2019, 11:00 to 12:30 in the San Jose Room, PantheaCon, Doubletree Hotel, San Jose. Please allow time to park and register; for more info, see www.pantheacon.com
